're communicating our message to voters. if we're not, the obama campaign did an incredible job defining mitt romney. if we were the party of the rich, that was basically six months of heavy advertising by the democrats. i think it was important to reposition ourselves. to talk to voters clearly about what we stand for. >> it sounds like what we're hearing, the mention is fine for the most part. no major problems with the message. it is how we are reaching voters and how we are delivering that mention. is that a fair assessment? >> i wouldn't say, there are things we can do to talk about our policies better. there are ways we can improve our message. he didn't talk so much about policies and i thought that's a clear point that needs to be made with regard to this rollout. there are a lot of tactical changes we need to make as a party and a movement to talk to people in a more clear way. >> save immigration. we'll talk about that. one of the major recommendations from the report has to do with the primary process. the rnc wants to move toward a shorter primary season. fewer debates in the last cycle.
son? we do know that last year portman was being vetted as a possible running mate for mitt romney. he said it had no impact in choosing paul ryan over portman. second, why is it necessary to have firsthand experience with a person or situation in order to figure out how to do the right thing? is an existential experience necessary to have existential position necessary for consent? >> i think senator portman made some pretty big inroads last week, but i think it's about being decent, and respect, people don't deserve to be disrespected. >> priebus stopped short of endorsing portman's position and obviously the rnc does not. here's house speaker john boehner. >> i believe that marriage is the union of one man and one woman. it's what i grew up with, it's what i believe. it's what my church teaches me. and i can't imagine that position would ever change. >> you know the church taught segregation before integration. and racial justice. churches do change. and their members as well. meanwhile, hillary clinton expressed her support of marriage equality in this advocacy video. >> i support
yesterday on cnn that romney's anti-immigration comments hurt the party. watch. >> one of the issues that i think really cut pretty badly within the hispanic community is when mitt romney talked about self-deportation. and, you know, it's a concept that really doesn't -- it's not our party's position. but it was something that i think hit every hispanic kitchen table across america. >> but i just want to tell you that he's wrong. it is the party's position. because if you read the party's platform, it says -- this is a direct quote from the republican party platform that was voted on and approved by the gop in august. quote, we will create human procedures to encourage illegal aliens to return home voluntarily. sounds like self-deportation to me. but i'm going to have to leave it there, unfortunately. i want to thank nia-malika henderson and margie omera for your time tonight. >>> ahead, rush says the gop is being suckered into changing. pop some popcorn, folks. the gop civil war is getting good. >>> plus, republican leaders tell a whopper about who the party is really working for. that's n
an assault weapon bans. >> i'm with you. red state democrats up for reelection, states carried by romney, but they have to win it in 2014, they face pressure from both the right and to some extent programs as much but not necessarily from the level. the head of the change campaign committee said it will hurt democrats. with dustwuns it will be a major election issue for democrats opposing strong gun laws. in other words, the real democrats won't show, which in an off year would be a very bad idea. if there's a credible primary challenge, a vote would absolutely hurt an incumbent democrat. that's from howard green. let's look at they states now. it looks to me, sam, that you have states like out west, i want to see this list of human. pryor in arrange saw, in arc, mary landrieu, kay hagen, there's a lot of senators who have to run in conservative states, mitt romney states. how do they deal with this issue this. >> you know the left, the progressive community hasn't made that much of a stink about the assault weapons ban. that might be because they recognize the political difficulties, bu

won two years in a row, starting in 2010. romney won last year, and now rand paul has proven he is a different kind of politician. people at cpac felt like he is not selling himself but selling a message of freedom and liberty and freedom from the government and overregulation, which is resonating with young people. >> neil: also challenging the party establishment and sort of ruffling some featheres, including the people who organize cpac, bemoening the time he was allowed to speak. dot that boomerang on him? >> i don't think so. the g.o.p. have the report that it came out today, trying to rebrand themselves and fine out what went wrong, and what went wrong is we have been embracing establishment counties for a long time. first john mccain, then mitt romney, and they're really seeing that rand paul is popular, able to connect with the facebook generation, which as we saw in the 2008 and 2012 election, has huge impact on how people vote. he talked in terms of freedom and deregulation and young people like that message, and he gave examples of, look, too we need to be spend your
to the children and that's what they did to break the ice. you'll remember netanyahu sported romney in the 2012 election. they were very good friends and his support was overt and vocal. let's go to netanyahu. he brought up things--first at the press conference, and here are some of the things he talked about. >> israel remains fully committed to peace and to the solution of two states for two peoples. we extend our hands in peace and in friendship to the palestinian people. i hope that your visit along with the visit of secretary of state kerry will help us turn a page in our relations with the palestinians. >> michael: tom president obama will be going to palestine to meet with palestinian president mahmoud abbas. here is more on at that same press conference. >> obama: i'm pleased to announce that we'll take steps to ensure there is no interruption in funding for iron dome. as as a result of decisions that i made last year israel will receive approximately $250 million this fiscal year and we will continue to work with congress on future funding of iron dome. >> michael: the president talkin
and netanyahu who has publicly supported mitt romney. there is no better way of saying welcome to our country than i voted for the other guy. but the jerusalem post today reported that president obama was staying 50 hours and not two days, 50 hours. when was the last time we had to go back and question the relationship between the two leaders of the country like we are now? >> that's a good point. shouldn't they have used the theme from "boosom buddies"? or perhaps "the a team." or "portrait of eddie's father." >> how about "mission impossible." >> that would be morrell vent. >> or "i want to sex you up" by color me bad. it was a staple of early 90s pop songs and it reflects the relationship perfectly. go, remi. >> i didn't believe this was real. when i click owed the link -- clicked on the link, i thought it was one of the crew members that put this together or a jibjab type of thing. it is so poorly done. you don't have to be an expert in political strategy or history or public relations to realize somebody threw it together. >> they brought the presidential limo seen over there and put die
issue given mitt romney had a similar plan in massachusetts. when you look at it today you really have to compare, especially given what steve is saying the status quo, which is it's a huge burden on individuals, families and corporate america as it stands now, healthcare costs, versus trying to implement something that is intended to reduce those costs. >> bret: i guess when you hear doctors who are opposed to obama care, or concerned about it. they talk about the $18 million added to medicaid and they talk about it already, doctor shortage and that underpayment for medicare already happens. if you think there is a shortage now, just wait until this thing kicks in in 2014. i guess that is the biggest thing you hear. >> and it points to the distinction between health insurance and real healthcare. you could have sham health insurance, a lot of americans will get. but if you don't a doctor, if doctors refuse to treat because of the payment schedules that are obscenely low that no doctor will take. already today, the medicare patients are turned away from a lot of doctors. if that is wid
where mitt romney ran are vulnerable. here we have mark pryor of arkansas, begih of alaska, mary landrieu and a lot of these people who are passionate on gun rights will remember every election from now on and vote accordingly against these people. >> well, chris, it's true that i would suggest to senators that there's some things worse than not being re-elected. but i also think they give the gun lobby way too much credit. let's take harry reid, who has coward before the gun lobby if harry reid thinks it's gun lobbyists who got him back in the election, he's nuts. he lost the male vote. it was the obama coalition of union voters, young voters who put harry reid back in office. people like harry reid give the gun lobby far too much credit. >> sam, what's your reaction to that? >> they say the same thing, that the nra has trumped that. and the only thing i would add to that is this. we've seen a lot of recent pollings, specifically background checks, and it's universally popular. i don't see any other issue polling at 90% popularity. if you read specific issues it might dip. this
. >> she joined mitt romney in supporting paul ryan's budget that removes medicare's promise of secure health coverage. ♪ >> michael: and with congress in a complete state of dysfunction, it is calling to the states to chart their own course on the real issues like gun violent. yesterday three months to the day after newtown, senate democrats dropped the assault weapon's ban from their dun bill. that prompted outrage from the left. faced with that kind of criticism, the white house responded. the chief of state argued it might still come up for a vote later. >> we're going to work on this. we're going to find the votes and it deserves a vote. >> michael: for now with no help from washington states are left to fend for themselves. colorado has now suffered yet another tragedy. the head of the state's prison system was assassinated at his home early this morning. he was killed just hours before the governor signed new gun-control laws it was a tragic prelude to what was supposed to be a triumphant day for gun limits. the governor signed the bill and afterward said e
romney said something similar a few days ago. let's talk about how the purpose of this war is being purposefully misremembered. we're being told now today all these reasons to feel good about the war. is it accurate to say that donald trump may have been the only republican to tell the truth what he said this was supposed to be a war for oil. >> he was accurate in part. there were a lot of reasons. those two quotes appeal compared to the things dick cheney had to sayness documentary running right now which absolutely curdled my blood. oil was a part of it, but there were many other parts. as you go through each one of the players you find each one had their own special reason for getting us into this nightmare. >> i wouldn't say i would condemn every politician who supported this, but in the case of cheney, bush, mitt romney and rush limbaugh, people who avoided military service in vietnam and then supported this war, do they get a special place in satan's party room? >> yeah, i would think so, but cognitive distance is par for the course for the republican party. it didn't surprise
successful and mitt romney was elected they would have gotten their way. neil: but, it is they might get their way wit president behind them. but declines numbers, might make it difficult even with the president. >> no question, righto work, and end of collective bargaining is bad for unions and workers. you have republican governors, like chris christie, who is supportive of private sector unions and collective bargaining, it is not the end of the world, but,hey will support a man who standing by their agenda, that is the way it works in washinnton. it works other way. so, you know, unions -- >> i don't know that they would have needed to getting any. a lot of folks watching this, say, i see they are in trouble in washington having a heck of a time since last year in wisconsin, losing out on some big state cutbacks even in california and what is going on across pretty were the southeast. so, they beg to feel like custer? >> i think for most part, you have to think about president obama's second term agenda, which you know, parts of it may affect the unions, but he is focused on gun cont
of the three million white guys that didn't vote for romney. i'm one of the people that are being driven away. first of all, i just think it's interesting, talking about the challenges of asians and hispanic communities, well, how come we don't talk about the challenges that germans face or italians or polish? because those groups assimilated. i don't know how many times i have to keep saying this, it just goes in one ear and out the other -- host: you think republicans are having trouble reaching out to those groups as well? >> caller: no, i used to believe in assimilation. we used to believe in moratoriums on migration, which was best for the whole country is unity. it's not diversity. it's encouraging groups to reject the idea of ethnic voting blocs and ethnic grievance. we don't believe in that. now, the republicans, country club republicans leadership wants to become democrats. they want to bow to the concept of the permanent ascendancy of multilingualism, the permanent ascendancy of group identity, and it's not going to work. and for every person they might reach out to, if they want to
-ended the republican primary might even have produced a different nominee. as mitt romney struggled in the weeks leading up to the michigan primary, newt gingrich and rick santorum nearly agreed to form a joint unity ticket to consolidate conservative support and topple romney. we were close, former representative bob walker, a grich ally says. grich a gingrich and an toreum couldn't agree. in the end gingrich told me too hard to negotiate. so much going on there! where do i start? >> like i said this is one of the great untold stories. >> that is hilarious. >> how would that have worked? i'm curious. >> it didn't! >> i'm asking this question seriously because -- >> that is the point. >> because back in 2008, the reason why mike huckabee got beaten by john mccain is because fred thompson and john mccain struck this same deal and made the difference in south carolina. how is this going to work? >> first important to situate ourselves to february when this happened in the gop primary. romney was really struggling and clear he had a tough time winning his home state. there was emerging anybody but

against that, and again, we had an election in november 2012. right? one of the issues was mitt romney with paul ryan has his running mate said we are going to privatize medicare turn into it a voucher system. the american people by a margin of almost 5 million people said we don't want that. third thing wrong is it repeals the affordable care act. it repeals obamacare, which has already kicked in. which has been there now two years, which the american people like, which is working, which even republican governors now have been buying into seven, i believe it is latest republican governors who have accepted the expansion of medicaid under obamacare. kids can stay on their parent's health insurance until they are 26. insurance companies can no longer deny kids coverage because they have a preexisting condition. by next year insurance companies won't be able to deny anybody coverage because they have a preexisting condition. that kicks in. and also these insurance exchanges making it possible for small businesses to ban together have been set up now in most states e
of massage the message. example, if you talk to naacp like mitt romney did in 2012, you don't do this. >> i'll eliminate every nonessential expensive program i can find and that includes obama care and i'm going to work to -- >> joining me now, democratic strategist robert zimmerman and cnn contributor anna nevaro. thank you for being with us. i want to go back to that event at naacp in 2012. >> why, carol? >> i was intrigued with the new massaging of the message. i thought we were friends. >> i'm sorry. i have to ask you this. how could mitt romney have better put that and make the audience a little more receptive to what he had to say? >> carol, mitt romney who? look, he's yesterday's news. he's not the candidate anymore. he himself has acknowledged there were a bunch of mistakes made by his campaign. he's not the one setting policy. he's not the one setting the tone for the republican party now. i think what we should talk about is what the rnc did today. they appointed some very no nonsense pragmatic people including our colleague ari fleischer from cnn and also sally bradshaw among the
worked for several republican governors including mitt romney when he was governor of massachusetts. >> reporter: a date for her confirmation hearing has yet to be set but probably, bill, in the next few weeks. bill: thank you, doug mckelway, more on those e-mails. >> well the family of a jailed american pastor in iran is now demanding that the obama administration issue a statement calling for the release of saeed abedini. attorneys for the abedinies at at hearing on friday accuse the u.s. state department being quote, awol on this subject for the last few months. listen to some of this. >> i think the state department's refusal to appear before this committee today is extremely troubling and frankly offensive. the failure to appear today to testify frankly is inexcusable. we've had some dialogue with the state department over the last several months. i will be honest, mr. chairman it has not been pleasant. the lack of concern, the lack of engagement has been problematic in our work to free pastor saeed abedini. saeed abedini is a united states citizen. he is us and our government
going to happen? do you see seiu endorsing mitt romney? >> not mitt romney. he's history. but the fact of the matter is, if the republican party wants to broaden itself out, going forward, they will choose canned -- candidates and issues that attract labor -- >> we have the very best! we have the very best issues about labor, we want to lower the taxes on working people and more liberty for working people. we want to protect america's borders and from terrorism for working people -- [overlapping dialogue] >> that has nothing to do with what we are talking about. >> we are not talking about the borders. you are conflating a burch of stuff that has nothing to do with unions itch the idea that working people is union membership is a fraud. working people need job creation. and conservative approximatelies will bring t. liberal policies will crush it -- [overlapping dialogue] >> that's proven to be untrue. >> shannon: gentlemen. we talked about the numbers. neap 1953, it is peak for union membership here. 26% of the labor force. now it's 11.3. if the unions are vital and so powerful, why t
have commodity, you put the poll up and think back to november 6, obama against romney in florida and romney a terrible candidate, and he got, he lost by less than two points in florida. here she is, winning by 11 points over jeb bush, much more popular in florida than romney has ever been so that tells us it is very much pro hillary clinton and antirepublican and a little antibush but the republicans, the brand, we use the guy's name in the first section, the executive director of the pew poll which is a respected poll, said that the g.o.p. brand is on the verge of being marginalized. if that happens, how do you recover? i don't know. >> if that happens and they cannot do this we will get another party in the country because the democrats are unpopular too. there is a 70's percent, we all talked about this, antiwashington, antipolitical party. someone will fill the void. if the republicans don't do it someone will. >> hillary clinton has to stay as far outside the mainstream of washington, dc, infighting, as possible so resign when slow did was a well timed act, and pat is right:
which does not allow in his opinion for any form of gun control whatsoever. he makes mitt romney look looks michael due dukakis. >> i paint in primary colors. >> these are details. >> they are details i would just as soon ignore. on some of those fronts. but, again, overall, the primary message that he delivers is less government at home and restraint abroad which you know what? the republican party has been reckless over the past decade. we have paid a lot for it with our philosophy. and so i think he's a good symbol like his father. listen. i voted for his father in the republican primary in 2012. did i agree with what he said about 9/11? >> god, i hope not. >> absolutely not. there are a lot of things that rand paul said i think are way out there and i disagree with, but the core issue of small government at home and restrained foreign policy abroad, i will -- >> not a realistic setting. >> people for symbolic purposes. >> joe doesn't like paper money either. he wants to get rid of the dollar bill. >> we are into a bartering system at the scarborough house. >> you got a problem say
romney of certain things from the senate floor. harry reid has to be called responsible for the statements that he made. as i say it, he needs to go over to the marine barracks before formation of marines, standing with the commandant and give an apology and not just have some spokes people from his office do it. that's cowardly. >>alisyn: harry reid did not say it was because of the sequester. what he did on the floor was he linked the two. he didn't say it was because of the sequester that this terrible tragedy happened. he was talking about the tragedy and then he just segued in his own head and verbally to talking about the sequester and about how we have to be careful. harry reid does this a lot, by the way. his spokes people are forever apologizing about the clumsiness. >>steve: his people tried to walk it back and they suggested the same thing you have. but when you listen to it where there are these dead marines and the sequester, he clearly has linked it. whether he wanted to or not, he linked it and it's wrong. not only should he apologize to the marines, he sh
to the very wealthy. it's like the romney plan on steroids. >> you would dispute that. "the wall street journal," though, congressman, wrote thing something on friday that caught my attention. the headline, conservatives warn lawmakers against tax deals. conservative activists and organizations have begun warning republican logtss if they agree to raise taxes in a broad budget deal with the president, they should expect to face challenges from the party's right wing in the next primary elections. i've tried to ask this week after week. any ratio of spending cuts to tax increases that any republican is prepared to support? >> every viewer that's watching today that's working already got a tax increase. the president took $600 billion out of this economy. he talks about a balanced plan but he never talked about cutting. >> but you extended 99% of the bush tax cuts, your own leader said that was a pretty good deal. >> he raised $600 billion worth of taxes. he took from the economy, and he never made any cuts. look, the president has a different belief than we do. he believes deficits don't
hearing from mitt romney about self-departation? >> hey, thomas, it's good to be with you. if you think about it president reagan and president bush, 43, are the last two american presidents who pushed comprehensive immigration reform. so, you know, immigration reform is -- has to deal with economic opportunity and growth. and that is very consistent with republican economic policies. so it's something that where i disagreed with governor romney's position on that. but we've got to move forward. and certainly as a committee, we did call on the republicans in congress to come up with a solution that's comprehensive, dealing with immigration reform. we're not trying to say, look, we want to tell republicans in congress what exactly needs to be in the legislation. but we have got to deal with this issue. >> one thing, henry, from the rnc report about that exact issue saying young voter, increasingly rolling their eyes with what the party believes. when someone rolls their eyes at us, they're not likely to open their ears to us. that's again to younger voters. another thing important to you
has a better chance of win hog may not be as pure on a conservative. >> that's what the romney situation was all about. and romney failed. >> very bold in that. >> they are. but they are congenitally unhappy. i have been covering this stuff for decades now. there are people in the republican party and in the conservative movement who are seldom happy except with certain candidates. if those candidates get nominated and have to go on and make the compromisees that politicians make. they end up enhappy with them as well. this is just part of the landscape. >> as history shows the two most extreme candidates in recent times were barry goldwater and george mcgovern and both got hammered. so i think you are right. just real quickly on the ted cruze barack obama front. isn't it interesting that both of their stories revolve around, you know, a rags to riches in america the greatest nation on earth but they both see this country so differently? think really do. don't they. look at the line of work that president obama went into. you know, it was a law professor and a community organiz
: well, the last time i was in israel, where you see that windmill over my shoulder, mitt romney was giving a speech. and during that trip, it was netanyahu who seemed to align himself with the president of israel. now these two leaders is trying to show the closeness of the relationship. to say all that friction was in the past, we got along so well, such that there was one moment that stood out. the drama of the morning, perhaps, was during that red carpet welcoming ceremony. the two of them walking side by side at the tarmac at the international airport in tel aviv. you saw the president take his jacket off and throw it over his shoulder. netanyahu awkwardly thought to himself, what do i do here? do i take it off? do i not. and he did the same as if to show not only were they so comfortable together, they could take their jackets off, the same shirts and blue ties. it was a moment that was really made for the public in this country that has viewed this as being a wide gap between the two leaders. but the primary topic in the conversation for the two later today behind closed d
million-vote margin between mitt romney and president obama. there's also some reference to the policy there. but it's unclear exactly what that would mean or where it would go. look, this just falls within the narrative of everything we're seeing in this country. as more and more republicans, more and more democrats and the american public evolves and has evolved quite quickly on this issue. and it's time quite frankly for our elected leaders in washington to catch up with the rest of the country. >> rock on, human rights campaign president, chad griffin, thanks for coming on the show. >> pleasure to be here, thank you, alex. >>> hash tag now is the time, it could be mantra for middle east peace. we will ask the new republican's ben birnbaum about the fierce urgency of a two-state solution when he joins us live from tel aviv, just ahead. hey, our salads.

today in business week. it says mitt romney struggled in the early primaries last year, newt gingrich and rick santorum nearly agreed to form a joint unity ticket to consolidate conservative support and topple romney. but the report says the negotiations collapsed because gingrich and santorum could not agree on who would be president. business week quotes gingrich as saying, in the end it was too hard to negotiate. >>> meanwhile at an elementary school yesterday, a politically savvy young student put new jersey governor chris christy on the spot. >> i'm a third grader at the elementary school. you've done a great job here in new jersey and i was wondering if you were thinking about running for president. >> do you work for msnbc? i'm not thinking about running for president right now because i've got a job to do here. and i've got an obligation to all these folks. you can't worry about fourth grade until you finish third gras grade and i can't worry about that until i do this job. when what you just bought, just broke. or when you have a little trouble a long way from home... as an a
candidate for a candid camera world. mitt romney had a lot of problems just being videoed, being himself. it was worse than the other problems he had which was not being himself. neither worked out very well. and chris christie does this thing, when he talks off the cuff. to kids or teachers or yelling at reporters, people love it. if you look on youtube at the viral videos, and he has created several. eight of the top ten are him being spontaneous. you can see, he says it is reprehensible. this is the crap i have to hear. >> how my uncle talk. >> what the hell are we paying you for? get the hell off the beach. i don't think it is a great way for a governor to address his constituents and i think he has used an outsized personality to actually distract from a very anti-worker platform so there are a lot of problem with chris christie. if we're optics, youtube, campaigning for a republican party that doesn't look good when it says what it thinks, he is better than most. >> he has pretty good approval ratings. >> rand is the intellectual side of the party which has a lot of truth to it but

romney's former vice president's running mate, congressman paul ryan. but first, senator rand paul of kentucky who recently complained the gop is becoming in his words stale and moss covered, criticism many believed is aimed at senator john mccain. >> i want you to clarify, there has been a rift between you and him. you suggested the other day that some of the senators and everyone assumed you were referring to senator mccain when you said the gop of old has grown stale and moss covered. you didn't want to say who you were referring to, but you said everybody knows who you were referring to. were you referring to senator mccain? >> i would say figurative sort of sentence in the sense that it isn't to be taken literally. it was also meant for humor. and i think it garnered a little humor, but it is to say we as a gop need to embrace new ideas and grow our party in a way that some haven't. but i didn't intend it to be directed at one person. >> but he was one of those persons that you were referring to? >> it is a figurative, illusion, it is not meant to be taken for one person. he a

forward-looking agenda for america. he made a mitt romney with a wife that's equestrian -- let's not kid ourself. we have two robust parties. each have their own problems. we're likely to see a competitive political environment for decades to come. as for rand paul, good comment. republicans need to help resolve the issue of immigration reform, in order to get this issue behind us. i think it's interesting. mitt romney got 27% of the latino vote. in the battleground states with exit polling he got 32%. in the battleground of battlegrounds, ohio, he got 42% of latino votes. maybe that's a small sampling. nonetheless, the fact of the matter is, the more he was able to make these arguments about the economy and deficit and debt and the affordable care act -- >> but doesn't the republican party have to pass immigration reform, seem to passing it to avoid having the appearance that they're not welcoming? >> the republicans have to play a role, absolutely. my former white house deputy has taken the leadership of the effort in california to help recruit and elect hispanic republicans at the loc
about them. so, for instance, mitt romney had this very big focus on the economy, but for the average american, it was tough to see how mitt romney's economic policies would make their lives any better off. i think that's the challenge republicans want to face if they want to be competitive. >> tim, some people would say americans for prosperity is part of the problem. >> not me. . who would say that? >> some people would say that requiring a strict orthodoxy when it comes to no tax increases, that's part of the problem. what's your response? >> in fact, a vibrant, growing, strong movement is a recipe for a party's success, and that movement is outside the party. the democratic party is not that strong. it was the obama campaign, it was george sorros in 2002, 2004. a lot of movement groups on the left that dragged the democrat party along with their energy, with the movement's energy. so i think a strong movement is a good thing. frankly, a not-so-strong party is a good thing. the democrat party is not that strong. it's about the movement, pulling them along. i think that's what we ha

they go out and talk to people, they are treated so badly. like romney went to philadelphia and got heckleed. when you look at the twitter feed, how badly was he? you have professors that are incompetent and that is the only thing you can do. this goes back to what dennis prager said, the right thinks the left is wrong, but the left thinks the right is evil. that excuses the dehumanizing behavior. the behavior that allows you to denigrate a surgeon. by the way, why are all surgeons conservatives? what is it about that? do they understand, younow, logic -- >> dana: logic and fact. >> greg: rapid paul, ophthalmologist, not a surgeon. ophthalmologists performs surgery. >> dana: they could. >> greg: case closed. >> eric: move to future of the g.o.p. >> kimberly: let's do it. >> dana: so bright you have to wear shades. >> eric: me and a lot of conservatives scratching our head as they talk about rebanding the party, because it's perceived as "stufffy old men" and needs to change its ways. we had thoughts on the g.o.p. rush limbaugh. listen. >> the republicans are totally bamboozled and l

the elections i think netanyahu thought he was in charge and he was rooting for mitt romney, lots of talk about potential attack on iran. the president has since won convincingly, netanyahu has lost some ground at home. i thought reading the pool reports that come back, netanyahu was complaining about all of the challenges he's facing putting together his new government and obama basically said, well, talk to me about it. look what my problems on capitol hill are, and netanyahu said, yeah, but we have more moving parts over here, parts in our country don't move at all, that's the problem. >> i had my doubts about whether or not he was going to shift netanyahu's opinion on him. i felt that from the -- remember that photototof netanyahu and obama sitting on the couch in the white house? >> the oval office. >> do you remember that? >> sure. being lectured. >> the whole body posture and so forth. but some of the video emerging from this trip is so authentic and even the words of netanyahu describing obama and what he means, what obama means to him in this relationship. a true friend. it was very au

, that mitt romney's comments about the 47%. this report says the very same thing t at the time, we talked about how the romney campaign didn't have troops on the ground didn't have any really good database. this report says the same thing. the key is and tell me your take on this. 866-55-press. will the party change? will it recognize what went wrong? and will it change? i don't think so. let me give you three quick examples. the report says would havee have to increase our outreach to mine or at this. the day after the the report president obama nominates tom perez for labor secretary and rush limbaugh and says this is as bad as hugo chavez and another because he supports immigration reform. another example, the report says, again, we have to reach out to more young voters. the day after the report came out, reinye brebius said the party is one man and one woman. we are against same-sex marriage. 81% of young people support marriage equality. >> if there is any issue that it shows the generational gap, it's marriage equality. >> bill: another one, the repo

the romney/ryan campaign. there has never been a better marketing campaign than the last year of republican politics. the entire debate promess, primary process, leading up to the convention the convention itself, was actually the perfect marketing for the genuine principles and concepts of the party, and so when you hear them say, we have a messaging problem, what they mean is we made the mistake of telling the truth. >> we told you exactly what we feel, and you don't like it. >> hal: that's a big mistake in moll ticks. the document itself has all of the content of a paul ryan budget. >> to reveal health care reform? >> exactly, but keep the money. we'll be back right after this, and we'll talk about the rape trial verdict that came down over -- stew benville and the amazing concepts that went with that. we'll talk about it after the break, and it points to the very problem of reporting and prosecuting rape in this country and the public response to it when it's a certain type of defendant, and it's right in line with where women are finding themselves in the electo
, and there wasn't a lot of hispanic support the last time around -- >> not for mitt romney. jon: about 30% as compared with 70% for president obama. >> right. and jeb bush's brother, president bush, got 45% of the hispanic vote. so we have a long road to go now. the gang of eight, they want to have a vote on this bill june/july. i'm hopeful, also, the house can pass a bill so we can have comprehensive immigration reform. jon: are the two bodies likely to see eye to eye? i mean, it's one thing to get republicans and democrats together in the senate which is a more collegial body -- >> yes. jon: the house a little more fractious. >> well, senators mccain and graham went over to the house and met with some republicans, and flake said they're open. i'm not going to say exactly what they said, but the bottom line is this: if the senate can prove this is not a blanket amnesty bill, then they can bring some people from the house onboard. jon: so you're fairly confident this is going to get done. the senators say they are very close on this immigration legislation. >> i'm confident that it will g

at the ryan plan in a little more detail. it's quite similar to what he and romney proposed. how is this different? some are calling it just the same old plan. >> well, again, i'm not sure that's true. i think the majority of americans think that the budget does need to balance at some point. the federal debt is too high. although we can disagree on some details, i think overall americans can agree, we need a budget. >> here's one detail. the ryan budget is dependent on repealing obama care which is all about guaranteed not to happen. so how realistic is it, congressman, that a budget is put out there that can never actually be implemented. >> it's increasingly apparent. it's not affordable. the affordable care act is basically costing too much. premiums going up too fast and i think we should dial them back or delay implementation. >> so do you agree that obama care is not going to be repealed? your jouft looking for an amendment to that? >> well, i have to tell you there's no question that implementation is not going to occur on time. in fact, one of the career folks over at hs
to a presidential race for the countries that we are tired of this war. neither gov. romney nor president obama to their mutual credit talked about accelerating the drop down just to get the heck out. we went through all of 2012 with no major speech by the president or governor romney about how we should hurry up our departure. if you look at our history, whether it's with the middle east, korea, taiwan, we spent decades supporting young democracy that were not always doing that well anomalies that impressive. we recognized we had security interests. it took south korea for decades to get to the point of a legitimate election and we stood by them all time. if we have our security interests engaged in seat gradual progress and the partner countries, we americans are capable of doing what i consider the right thing in sticking with it. into not talk ourselves doing something for our long term interest before we even try. >> i agree with all that mike has said. the point made other post- conflict societies where we have had a long-term presence, because of the staying power, we toe these societies
the group called america rising mitt romney's former campaign manager matt rose. carl cameron is live for us in washington. this will be a superpac that will just do research? >> reporter: opposition research as it's called and rapid response. both sides do it. all political parties do it in one way or the other. usually the research of ones a poepb event and pumping it out to the public is done by the state or political parties or individuals themselves. they will be an independent superpac and focus ongoing after democrats to help the republicans on the right go against the liberals on the left this. all came together literally in the same week that the republican national commit lee last week announced its own season autopsy, and urged the formation of a quote, an allied group dedicated solely to research to establish a private archive and public website that does nothing but post inappropriate democratic utterances and information on democrats. in 2012 a couple of democratic superpacs did real damage to mitt romney's reputation and his campaign. republicans have had a couple of superpacs
romney-bill gates crowd, five miles to one inch. >> michael: that's amazing. that's amazing. tell me, is this how things start? is there a reason to be optimistic? >> yes well, look, we got into this terrible situation because of three things. we had a president who said tax cuts will make everybody's income grow up. i have written and challenged the data, no, incomes fell. then we had these unfunded wars. they're going to weigh on us as a cost for long after i'm gone. my children will be old before we're done paying for the war in iraq. the third factor, when we had a meltdown at wall street we put at risk $14.7 trillion--that's the entire output of the entire country for a year to rescue wall street, and we cut back on things like education basic research infrastructure that create lots of jobs for other people. we have an economy that is designed to do what it's doing and that is to redistribute upward and to benefit those at the very top, and the massive americans don't get that because that's not what i news media is telling them even though it's very clear when you look at the
the massachusetts law that went in when romney was there took emergency room business through the roof. and as people were forced to go to -- there weren't enough doctors and they're forced to emergency rooms. >> ironically that the one thing this is supposed to avoid, so people who don't have coverage and go to emergency rooms, actually -- >> fill them up. >> neil: what's it going to do to the quality of care. when you were running ge you were very big at make sure your employees had a very -- i used to work for it, very generous plan. what now? >> simple arithmetic. we aren't going to make that many more doctors and we're pumping 30 to 40 million more people into the system, something has to give. they're going to have to do a lot more home care. a lot more clinical work outside the hospital. it's going to be a problem. but in the other hand, we'll cope with it in some way. >> neil: is it realistic for folks like dr. ben carson or paul ryan to talk about junking the healthcare law all together? i think that's tough. >> i think that's a bad tactic. hopefully we'll get some smart modif
a candidate mitt romney who wasn't evolving he revolved. >> bill: we do a comp place of compilation of polls. about 53. >> thank you. >> bill: there is no doubt many people have evolved whatever you call it why? >> because the world is changing. >> bill: that's b.s. why? why are people changing? >> i think the media may have a lot to do with it. >> bill: the media? >> people are seeing maybe there is is more exposure. >> bill: ellen degeneres pop culture, we like ellen. >> some people are becoming more accepting. >> bill: and you? >> and i also think this is a complicated issue. you can see both sides to a lot of it. a lot of people say and a lot of issues black and white. on this issue there is a lot of gray. people have gay members of their family and they want to see them have the same rights and so on. so there is a gradual chipping away. i think that's happening with their. you are seeing a lot of people evolve. >> bill: they are valid answers but i think the other side who opposes gay marriage has not made their argument very powerfully. there is usually a reason why you oppose. religi
's not forget, probably sorted mitt romney in certain ways. what the prime minister wants is to solidify his relationship to the best possible way. he also wants to -- to make obama see that security problems, as he understands them, and to impress upon him the seriousness of israel's security situation. he figures he has him here to two. he's going to push some themes pretty hard. >> iran is programs the most important? i realize most important certainly from netanyahu's perspective and very, very important from obama's perspective. the official line, of course, is they're not far apart at all. they see eye to eye, shoulder to shoulder. the truth is they have very different timelines for this netanyahu thought in six monthsings which is now, that iran would be approaching the nuclear threshold. obama said last week, from a year. so they're going to try to hash this out to some degree and present a common front action and of course netanyahu doesn't really truly believe that obama would use military force to stop iran. obama is worried in a netanyahu would use military force prematurely. so
. it was clear that what ryan has put up in what he calls a budget and what he and mr. romo ran on was -- romney ran on was the republican platform. now they bring it back as if there was no election. >> neil: do you think the budget submitted by senator patty murray, which doesn't approach balance and increases spending and increases taxes, is what the american people voted for back in november? is that what they voted for? >> do you know there's no one that challenges that america's on the road to recovery. if you think for one minute just saying that you are cutting spending, that doesn't mean that you are cutting savings. it doesn't mean you're not -- more money. >> neil: even under the -- we're cutting the growth. are you saying -- >> you're talking about -- jo congressman, yes or no, do you think cutting spending should be a goal? yes or no. >> should i think cutting -- yes, it's how you cut it, of course. everybody believes in cutting. >> neil: what would you cut? >> there's so much money that's already been cut. if we had the obama law, things were cut there. ryan knows it, because he to
, it's a good thing that mitt romney did not have any money in the cyprus banks. seriously, russia bailing out -- question, if cyprus leaves the euro zone, so what? does anyone care? >> no, and ben made a good point about the difficulty of valuing the gas reserves from what i heard, that may be the best p s option, it will not add more debt. if you borrow more money, we will not give you bail out. what other option do they have? >> ben steele, let me ask you, so, if cyprus is kicked out of the you're he oh -- the euro zone, does that trigger a run on leaving the euro zone, is greece next or does anybody care? >> it may very well lead to a crisis in the eu, larry. the cyprus is forced by the eu to abrogate the deposit insurance scheme, what does it mean for deposit insurance schemes throughout the eu, we could see a run on spanish banks and italian banks and u.s. money market funds are heavily exposed to european banks so there could be problems within the united states. >> so we may need russia to save the economy. holy cow, how did we get to this point. many thanks to ben steele,
the romney/ryan ticket. he believes he just didn't sell that austerity enough. he has said that. he believes, oh, we just didn't message it well enough. the american people knew exactly what they were selling and they wanted no part of it. and yet here they come, bringing back the same tired losing ideas again. >> now, you know, congressman, today during the debate, house republicans insisted that the public's spending can't create jobs. take a listen. >> we're not promoting additional stimulus spending as the budget being proposed is. a giant proposal for additional spending did not help us several years ago. jobs do not come from additional federal spending long term. >> congressman, new polls show americans of both parties want the federal government to spend to create jobs. 91% are democrats and 63% of republicans support a federal government program that would put people to work through infrastructure repairs, is what they support. and 93% of democrats and 56% of republicans support the federal government spending money to create more than a million new jobs. this is just a fact. and th
in the u.s. campaign where netanyahu more or less endorsed mitt romney for president. how much of the loathe that is coming from b.b. towards our president is kind of him trying to make sure that he has not done long-term damage to the relationship in that direction? we know what barack obama's objectives here are but it it seems to me netanyahu is making up for any hurt feelings he did over last summer. >> absolutely. there is a political balance here. if you can see the see-saw right now. netanyahu is weaker than re-elected barack obama. they need each other. but israel needs the u.s. to have its back, both because of syria, the civil war next door, the possibility of chemical weapons which would be, as the president said, a real game-changer, though, i'm told that they have no evidence that chemical weapons were used by the regime. the president is very clear that it would not have been used by the opposition. that was fallacious argument from the regime but no hard evidence they were used. if it were used, it would be a game-changer. but israel needs the u.s. for iran and t
people, tax breaks which mitt romney and paul ryan talked been on the campaign trail. >> neil: they were without raising the overall rate. now we have the rates raised. so republicans talk of a need for a trigger. they might go along with this tax break stuff and all their closing the loopholes, that they did agree it's sort of wasting time and money and the tax code, but you guys have then got to, as part of the trigger, agree simultaneously to these cuts you talked about. what do you make of that? >> well, first of all, the difference is republicans have never said they're willing to close some of those tax loopholes for the purpose of reducing the deficit. which is what the bipartisan -- >> neil: i got a couple on you. i suspect no angel in the ranks of either party. but they did say that they would be open to closing these loopholes but without this being the only negotiating point on the part of democrats. not more taxes but this time you have to put up -- your party has to put up specific cuts, and they both go off at the same time. >> well, i couldn't -- we can certainly try to de
barack obama was the pro-growth optimist and that mitt romney was the pessimist and kemp always wand that high ground which reagan always had. the point i want to underscore that you just said and then i'll bring the others in, i knew jack, jack was such a dear friend. jack talked constantly about reaching out to minorities, empowerment zones, school choice for example, home ownership. it was jack kemp who worked with charlie rangel to create empowerment zones here in new york and elsewhere and to cut or abolish the capital gains tax to entrepreneurs. it's one of the days to this day i'm still charles errol rangel. the republican party has to get that for blacks, for minorities, for asians, prosperity for everybody of. >> instead of defending multi-millionaires, he went out to those who were poor, minorities and said i want you to be millionaires. >> it wasn't just his energy, it wasn't just his entrepreneurship, it was his message. can you almost say that message of capitalism and prosperity for everybody but especially for those that have not, jimmy. jack kemp spoke to those who ha
the elections last year. ryan said it's not because of the budget that romney and mr. ryan lost, but there were other things that played there as well. let's listen to representative paul ryan. >> this is a good week for all us represents, a week where we bring to the country a responsible, balanced budget. the reason we are balancing our budget is because it is a necessary means to an end which is to improve people's lives. we balance the budget without raising taxes. we're actually growing the economy. it appropriates a fasters a healthier stronger economy to create more jobs. michael: the reason a lot of republicans probably voled against this bill is it doesn't stand a prayer in the senate. it is not going to pass the senate. this is almost a symbolic vote. they voted on this ryan budget now a number of times amounted i had has not really passed ever. john boehner was happy because what they did also today was approve by 318-109 a federal spending bill to keep the government funded through september 30, which averts a march 27 shutdown of the government. here is the speaker of the house exc

. that's where romney made his mistake. even people who make 40, 35,000. every time they turn around, sales tax, tolls, register your car, bang, bang, bang. >> i had asked and asked and asked much this administration, this white house, this president, the democrats in congress, what then is the number? what is the number you want? they won't answer. >> bill: they want everything. restaurants in the u.s.a. people dining out less. is this a pure don't have any money play? what is this? >> cut in disposable income. brought to you by another tax. that is the tax holiday, the payroll tax holiday that ended with the fiscal cliff is brought back and that is, according to the restaurant industries the reason that they have seen a sizeable fall. >> bill: like 7.5% rise. what was it it the payroll tax reinstituted to what? >> took 2% off of gross income. >> bill: 2%, i'm sorry. it's 2% and you say that's inhibiting people from eating out. >> that's what the restaurant association is saying. and they are right. they are looking at same store sales and they're off by 3 to 5%. >> bill: all right.
campuses at all but admitted romney was criticized for ignoring polish voters and writing them off. >> guest: when you go to young voters and reach out you have a chance to reach out but this is one the most fascinating things of the campaign that was very under covered by he ran a program in iowa geared at a high-school students because you can vote in the primary if you are 17 and will be 18 for the general so he went to the high schools targeting high school seniors who were 17 years old to engage them and that is one of the reasons he won the iowa caucus because of the unprecedented the engagement of the 17 year-old high-school 17 drones a year identified. >> host: we are never too early what does a democrat running what do they need to keep in mind while targeting this particular generation? >> this generation wants to hear a positive message and wants to be brought to the table because they have been put on the chopping block and we have been left out and i've loved to see them engaging more young people in their campaigns. young people always work on campaign spent more peop
the litmus test is elections. paul ryan was on the national ticket. he basically argued as did mitt romney, on the very well thing that the house republicans just passed. and the voters cast farvotes for more votes for u.s. senate candidate who is were democrats and far more votes for democratic candidates for the house of representatives. so that's the way we resolve these differences in our country, by elections. it was not really a very close call? >> the fiscal issue has not been resolved i. of course, it hasn't been resolved. hold on, mercedes, let's acknowledge what has happened, the deficits have dropped now for 3 straight years at a rate lower -- faster pace than we have seen since the end of world war ii. nobody wants to acknowledge that. but they are coming down because we did have to engage in emergency spenning when the chitanked and we are coming out of that. we have to have balance -- that's good. but what is really good is job creation and a strong economy. we are seeing the effects of austerity. they would trade our economy for theirs in a success. in realtime, as consequen
: if they go to the college campus is at all. mitt romney was criticized for largely avoiding the kawlija voters and maybe sort of giving up on them and writing them off. >> guest: the history is when you go to the young voters and reach out to them you have a chance of getting their vote, and barack obama even in 2008 this is one of the most fascinating things about the 2008 campaign the was very undercover is he actually ran a program in iowa on high school students called barack. so he was engaging in them and that is one of the reasons in the caucus is this unprecedented engagement on the part of 17-year-old high school students which he identified as a potential audience. >> host: with 2016 on the horizon it is never too early. >> guest: never too early. >> host: never too early. what is a democrat running let's say it's hillary clinton or a republican running or let's say it is chris christi for example, what do they need to keep in mind when targeting this particular generation? >> guest: i think that this generation wants to hear a positive message and be brought into the table be

for mitt romney during the presidential race, i'm sure that plays into the tension. this relationship, how does it shape how the two countries might be dealing with iran? >> yeah, that's an interesting question and from talking to american israeli officials this relationship endures even when there is tension between the two leaders even though it doesn't help to have that kind of daylight between them when iran is watching all these signals. that's why this trip has toot a lot with the optics visa see iran. behind the scenes there are discussions going on 37 prime minister netanyahu said 2013 will be the year of decision. and that's why they want to be on the readiness of israel on the possibility that israel could strike unilaterally. so you know, they have a lot to work out on this issue specifically on mainly what is the red line and what point does military action become inevitable? >> michael: there has been skepticism in this trip. a recent poll from the israeli newspaper asked israelis to describe president obama's relationship with their country. 38% described him as being hostile

. they are not sympatico, there is still an assumption that netanyahu is still in mitt romney's camp. >> hal: let's be real clear as a full disclosure that never gets done. andrea mitchell is married to alan greenspan, the former head of the fed. and he was an acolyte of ayn rand. if you look at the age difference she was a trophy wife at the time. i'm glad they stuck together. but initially you can tell she was his hot young politician kind of wife. that being said, it is never stated that andrea mitchell -- every time she talks about anything dealing with monetary issues, it should be tattooed on her forehead so you know who you are talking to. it's like when clarence thomas's wife talking about religious freedom and the right not to have health care you should say by the way. that being said, it is interesting to me what she says that what is botched about this relationship is that they are not sympatico, there's not a buddy system. where you would never say that about any of our other allies. and it may be from some group -- if we don't have this no daylight relationship
